Camp for the Displaced

I, Becky, spent Saturday afternoon walking through a camp for people displaced from the civil war. As I continued deeper inside the camp I lost all sense of how big it actually is. Some of the people are still living in stick and tarp houses since 1999. Others have managed to build red mud brick dwellings. Multiple families live together. The 86 "War Widow's for Christ" that we are serving through the food distribution and agriculture/skills development project live within the camp. I am just beginning to grasp the magnitude of the needs here in Sierra Leone.
